Question:My todays scan report shows small muscular VSD seen by colour doppler and small choroid plexus cyst seen on left side 5.2 mm...is any problem related to this..?
Answer: Hi dear! Vsd is a ventricular rental defect which means that there is a small opening in the setum that divides 2 lower chambers of heart known as ventricles. If it's small then there is a possibility it can close on its own but we have to keep a. track on it. A choroid plexus cyst is just a small fluid filled structure within the choroid of the lateral ventricle present in the brain . This is not considered as any fetal abnormality and it wont damage ant brain functions of the baby.it will usually disappear at around 30-32 weeks of pregnancy. So don't worry and do keep a watch on it thought the scans. Take care.

Answer: A choroid plexus cyst is a small fluid-filled structure within the choroid of the lateral ventricles of the fetal brain. ... A choroid plexus cyst is not considered a structural or functional brain abnormality. Most choroid plexus cysts are isolated and occur in otherwise low-risk pregnancies.These cysts do not damage the brain or affect the way the brain works. Choroid plexus cysts are not a tumor or type of cancer. Although a choroid plexus cyst does not cause problems, when a cyst is seen during pregnancy it raises concern about a small risk (less than 1%) for a condition called trisomy 18. Consult ur Doctor
